It’s the day before the official start of the 100th Benton County Fair, and the grounds are packed with folks getting everything ready.

Denise Scapanski is one of the fair planners, and she says they have plenty of exhibits and activities focusing on a century’s worth of Benton County Fairs.

Today’s activities are centered around members of 4H and other volunteers who are preparing the animal barns, as well as judging this year’s 4H project entries.

We’ll be visiting the fair throughout the week, but check out the video below for a snapshot of some pre-fair activity.
